BlackBerry 10.1 : Gotta have it? Get it!

Announcements

Hey BlackBerry devs – we’ve got exciting news for you! To tide you over until the much awaited BlackBerry Q10 release, you’ll be seeing a new SDK OS update for your BlackBerry Dev Alpha C devices. This 10.1 SDK OS is a developer preview that allows you to check out how your apps will run on the soon-to-be-released Q10 device.

What about Dev Alpha B devices?

We’ve got an update for that too! With this release you’ll be able to check out how your Z10 apps will run on the 10.1 OS, and make all the necessary changes, if needed.

Have you already submitted your awesome app and received your LE BlackBerry 10 device? Or have you already picked up your own BlackBerry Z10?

We certainly want to see more of your great app ideas come to life, so you’ll also be seeing a 10.1 SDK OS update for these devices as well.

Will the simulators be getting an update too?

Yes! There will be a 10.1 SDK OS build for the BlackBerry 10 simulator, so whether you test on a device or a simulator, know that you’ll be able to test on the most recent build available. You won’t see two different simulators available but you will get one simulator with the option to boot to a Z10 or Q10 resolution.

Let’s recap the updates that you’ll be seeing:

  • Dev Alpha C device
  • Dev Alpha B device
  • BlackBerry Z10 devices
  • Simulator for Z10 and Q10

So how can you get these updates for your device?

The 10.1 SDK OS will be available for each device through its own autoloader – you’ll see one each for the Dev Alpha C and the Dev Alpha B.

For developers who want to test it on their BlackBerry Z10, you’ll need to find out your device model number and grab the corresponding autoloader. The device model can be found under Settings> About. See the example screenshot below.

Note: This SDK OS update is only for testing purposes and does not replace your full BlackBerry 10 OS. To revert your BlackBerry Z10 to a public OS release, please follow the steps outlined in this KB Article. Using BlackBerry Link, you will be able to reload your device software to a full OS and, if needed, download any OS updates from your carrier.

Device targets for the Momentics IDE will also be updated. If you need a refresher on how to download the target OS and configure it, we’ve got a detailed description right here.

Now that you’re ready for the Q10 (and subsequent 10.1 release!), we can’t wait to see and use your apps! Go on and grab the updates and the simulator at developer.blackberry.com!

Stáhnout si ji sice ze stránek BlackBerry může prakticky kdokoliv, není však určena pro běžný provoz. Pokud se rozhodnete nainstalovat si tuto verzi OS do své Z10, děláte to na vlastní nebezpečí.
